Feyenoord overcomes 9-man Celtic 2-0 in Champions League opener

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) — Celtic had Gustaf Lagerbielke and Odin Thiago Holm sent off within five minutes of each other as the Scottish club opened its Champions League campaign with a 2-0 loss at Feyenoord. Calvin Stengs gave Feyenoord the lead in first-half stoppage-time with his 30-yard free kick past a poor defensive wall. Former England goalkeeper Joe Hart saved a penalty after Lagerbielke received a second yellow card and substitute Holm soon got a straight red in the 68th minute. Alireza Jahanbakhsh got the home side’s second goal.
